"um-[1:151 ESTATES PATENT OFFICE RECORDING LIQUID DISPENSER Harold R. Wheeler and Joseph A. Kofalt,

Harrisburg, Pa.

Application July 25, 1946, Serial No. 686,248

' 3 Claims.

This invention relates to improvements in liquid dispensing devices, and more particularly to the provision of a device for recording the amount of liquid dispensed. l

Liquid dispensing devices heretofore employed have generally dispensed definite amounts of liquid at each operation, but such devices have had no means for determining the total amount of liquid dispensed over a given period. This is of importance in cafes, bars, and the like, which dispense many bottles of liquid daily.

It is, therefore, an object of this invention to provide a liquid dispensing device which records each predetermined quantity of liquid dispensed.

A further object is the provision of a liquid dispensing device having few parts, and simple operation, enabling accurate recording of the amount of liquid dispensed.

These and other objects are attained by the novel construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and illustrated by the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof, and in which:

Fig. 1 is a front view of a recording liquid dispenser embodying the invention.

Fig. 2 is a side view of the device.

Fig. 3 is a sectional view taken on line 3--3 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is a bottom View of the device.

Referring to the drawings, the recording liquid dispenser is shown to comprise a main body I having a shoulder upon which rests a Washer 2 bearing against the mouth of a bottle 4 threaded in the body I at 3. The main body has a cylindrical hole 5 through which passes a tube 1', having an enlarged upper portion resting on a shoulder 6 of the main body I.

The upper portion 8 of the tube has a pair of spaced baffles 9 and I0, and the main body I has a by-pass l communicating with the tube.

The lower end of the tube 1 is open, and fixed thereto is an arm I2, connected to a link l3, which is pivotally connected to an arm l4 adapted to operate a counter I5, mounted on the main body.

In operation, the upper baflle 9 normally closes the opening to the bottle containing the liquid. When it is desired to dispense a definite quantity of liquid the tube 1 is pushed up as far as it will go, thus moving baflle 9 up into the bottle, and allowing the liquid to flow in the space between baflle 9 and bafile 10. At the same time, the upward movement of cylinder 1 moves arm I! and operates the counter l5 to record the dispensing of the quantity of liquid.

The cylinder is then allowed to move down, and the liquid is dispensed over baflle I0 into bypass II, and through the lower part of cylinder I into a glass or other receiving container. When not in use, baiile I0 is normally positioned opposite the by-pass ll.

The device is simple in structure, having few parts, and positive in operation, with a minimum of leakage. The main body and parts associated therewith are preferably made of glass, the counter being of a common type and made of metal. The dispenser can be used advantageously in many situations such as liquor dispensing bars, cafes, laboratories, and other places where definite quantities of a liquid are required to be dispensed.

The above description is to be considered as illustrative and not limitative of the invention, of which modfications can be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the appended claims,

The invention having been described, what is claimed is:

1. In a measuring dispenser for bottles and the like, a cylindrical body having a centrally disposed bore extending longitudinally therethrough with an inner circumferential bead at the outer end, said body having a bypass recess communicating with the bore in one side thereof and intermediate of the ends of the body, and a tube providing a spout with a centrally disposed discharge passage and also providing a cylindrical base the outside diameter of which is greater than that of the circumferential bead, said tube being slidably mounted in the bore of the body, said cylindrical base being closed at the inner end and provided with a transverse balile dividing the base into separated chambers, and said base having a longitudinally extending slot in one side communicating with each of the chambers thereof and also with the said bypass recess in the side of the bore of the body.

2. In a measuring dispenser for bottles and the like, a cylindrical body having a centrally disposed bore extending longitudinally therethrough with an inner circumferential bead at the outer end and an internally threaded socket at the inner end, and a tube providing a spout with a centrally disposed discharge passage and also providing a cylindrical base the outside diameter of which is greater than that of the circumferential head, said tube being slidably mounted in the bore of the body, said cylindrical base being closed at the inner end and provided with a transverse baffle dividing it into separated chambers having openings therein at one side of the base, and said body having an internal recess adapted to communicate with said openings.

3. In a measuring dispenser for bottles and the like, a cylindrical body having a centrally disposed bore extending longitudinally therethrough with an inner circumferential bead at the outer end and an internally threaded socket at the inner end, said body having a bypass recess communieating with the bore in one side thereof and intermediate of the ends, and a tube providing a spout with a centrally disposed discharge passage and also providing a cylindrical base, the outside diameter of which is greater than that of the circumferential bead, said tube being slidably mounted in the bore of the body, said cylindrical base being closed at the inner end and providedwith a transverse baffle intermediate of the ends dividing the base into separated chambers with the outer chamber communicating with the discharge passage, said base having a longitudinally extending slot in one side communicating with each of the chambers thereof and also adapted to communicate with the said bypass recess in the side of the bore of the body, and said tube having an actuating arm with a link pivotally connected thereto extending from one side thereof, said link adapted to actuate a counter positioned on the said body.
